It is a new year for the Gulf Shores. The beaches are super clean, bright and white. The oil removal teams did their job, and continue to do so when little globs come ashore. The jellyfish have not yet hatched. The seaweed is to a minimum at this time. The sand spurs have been cleared. There is very little litter. NOW, is the time to go to the Panhandle of FL, AL, LA and TX Gulf of Mexico.
Note, I did not "doctor up" or "Photoshop" any of these photos. Out of my camera they came, and up on this webpage I put them. This is exactly what I saw and my camera captured the photos. The Gulf Shores area is better than ever. Come on down to your next vacation spot. It is lovely and relaxing.
